PODCAST 073: Greg Aukerman, Microchurches, & Stairstepping Back to Buildings



Well, we're going back into the building. Or at least a small percentage of us are. Many, though, are opting to take a slower approach heading back into the space. Is there a different approach?

Churches like Saddleback and Elevation have been experimenting with Micro-locations for a while now, and this week we're having a conversation with another church who has been doing micro-church for almost five years now.

Greg Aukerman has served as the Director of Online Community for Crossroads Church (Cincinnati) off and on for a while now, and on his watch Crossroads built a rather effective micro-church strategy, enabling the Priesthood of All Believers to effectively reach their towns and neighborhood.

How can these lessons be leveraged in this COVID-19 season? That's the question we're asking, here on The Church Digital Podcast.

  • Crossroads Church - Find Your Fit
  • Do you see the "priesthood of believers" model working at your church. Has this COVID season helped or hurt your church in empowering others "on mission?"
  • Looking at your church's strategy, What would a full microsite strategy look like? Is it more than just church services? How can this be replicated?
  • Who are the people in your church who would be capable of leading a micro-church movement temporarily?


We know these conversations are out there are hard. Even the best of churches haven't figured out... If this podcast is helping you and your church work through what Church Online is, then help us impact other churches! Take a moment and leave us a brief review!
